the democratic coalition is dominant, illinois, for example, new york state and california, you see a very different policy mix. which direction are they going? >> their policy mixes to mirror what's happening in washington, which is do not address any of your structural spending problems and need to add spending and ask your taxpayers in particular to-- the wealthier taxpayers to contribute more to that and it's a tax and spend policy. one of the problems that the states have, obviously it's not helping their economic growth and you're beginning to see a huge contrast on the ground between the economic situations of states that are reforming, and those that are not. >> paul: give us a couple of examples, kim, where is growth occurring where you're seeing it. the jobless rate, for example, in illinois the last time i checked was 8.8%. >> yes. >> paul: and meanwhile, wisconsin 6.9%, very interesting contrast. >> look at indiana, where it's also low, and-- yeah, north dakota, which by the way, steve mentioned you know, the fracking boom going up there. and i think it's below 5%, it's astonis

, you're obviously part of the california district attorney's association, as we were talking before the panel began, you shared with me that your organization has previously supported a measure that mark leno brought forward to lower the punishment for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana to a misdemeanor to an infraction. in this case your organization is essentially opposed to it. what do you say to mr. adelman and mr. gascon? >> i think one of the things i want to point out is that in terms of the changes currently taking place in california's criminal justice system is that we have embarked on a very, very large experiment and that's called realignment. prison population in california is going to approach by -- or sometime next year the federal mandate of 130,000. we've already released some 50,000 individuals to serve their time locally, and these offenses that we were talking about here are currently in the list of offenses that were to be served in county jails now. and if the notion here is to provide services and treatment to these individuals from a practical poin

in the aisles. ethan, let me ask you this. you know, in california, there are a number of offenses, drug possession offenses, that are punished already as misdemeanors. i think met amphetamine, p.c.p., i think valium, certain steroids, and yet we treat as felonies, the possession of cocaine and heroin as felonies. did you see this kind of discrepancy in the other states that your organization has worked to -- >> matt, if i could, i think the perspective i could offer would be more useful in that is really putting what the u.s. is doing, california is doing in a more global perspective. because what one sees around the world is a growing number of countries that are choosing to decriminalize the possession of all drugs, when the proposals now are merging -- new jersey did this a few years ago in a small way, colombia, argentina, ecuador, guatemala, some with right wing governments, very tough on crime, and in europe, similarly. it's not generally the standards to be putting people behind bars for a possession of any drug in small amounts for one's own personal use. and perhaps the paramou

tempore: the gentleman from california is recognized for 15 seconds. mr. dreier: i thank my friend for the 15 seconds, and i'll try not to exceed that. if i do i appreciate his generosity in yielding me such time as i might consume. mr. speaker, let me just say that i appreciate the fact that my friend said we should have a defense capability that is second to none. we should be pre-eminent in the world. i appreciate his statement that that needs to be done. i also appreciate the fact that he talks about the multifairous societal needs out there, ensuring we don't see those who are struggling to make ends meet suffer. we concur wholeheartedly in that goal. but i have said this time and time again, i said it in the rules committee, and mr. bishop and i had a discussion about this. and mr. hastings got into this as well. and that is i argue, this is my perspective, and thomas jefferson said two thinking people given the exact same of facts can draw different conclusions, but i concluded as i look at the preamble of the constitution with all of the important statements in there, we th

with this fiscal cliff some people in california are about to get sucker-punched by higher health care costs too. blue shield of california says they will be raising premiums by as much as 20% as a result of the increased costs associated with, obamacare. but here's the kicker. if that is not already. blue shield of california has $3.9 billion of cash already on hand. that is nearly three times more as they're required to v should they even be allowed to jack up their premiums this much? and will other insurers soon follow suit? to follow this we have the former president and ceo of intergirs health and author of the book, political malpractice. thanks for joining us tonight. >> thank you, sandra. sandra: my question, blue shield wants to raise rates by average of 12%. in some cases they will be raised 20%. could you call this the unintended condition sequences of obamacare? >> well it was certainly predictable. when you begin to add things which are favorable to consumers but perhaps very expensive to insurance companies you could expected the insurance companies to cover their bets. preexistin
